    Immersion heater above fuse box

    I have rented a flat and there are now issues due to lack of pressure from the immersion boiler to the shower head (the flat is only electric, no gas). I am trying to find a way through the pressure issue. Another problem that may or may not be one is that the boiler is above the fusebox in a cupboard. I am getting conflicting opinions about this. Is it legal or do I have to move the fusebox from underneath the boiler?

    Are you the landlord or the tenant?

        Oh, well it's going to be hard to do anything with it let. I would change the fusebox position when it's void though.

          It's not ideal, the consumer unit should be in an acessible position
          If a tenant were to fall off steps or a chair they could try and sue- if you have had written advise about the location mentoning the height then you would have explaining to do.

            The consumer unit is at about 2-3ft from the ground under the immersion so height is not an issue.
